  2. Hi Sandra :) I am back on line with a new better quality PC ( my Christmas present to myself :P) and excellent tech support right in my area, they make house calls and for very little. I didn't like being without a PC.

    I like your selection of books, will look into them. I do the FridayFill~IN, I'll do it a little later in the morning.

    Have a nice week-end

  5. I love the sound of The City of Dreaming Books! And I agree with Gautami (and Beth), the covers of these books are great. Thanks also for introducing me to the Oklahoma Booklady!

  7. I added Elie Wiesel's book to my Pub challenge. I really enjoyed Night, even though it broke my heart.

  9. Definitely need to take a closer look at A Mad Desire to Dance! 'Night' held me captive for the few sittings it took to read it...
